Police are hunting three teenage boys after a night of mayhem in Invergowrie that saw numerous cars being damaged.
Police Scotland is appealing for information about an “extensive series” of vandalisms and car break-ins in the village and at Dundee Technology Park, which happened between 10pm and midnight on Wednesday.
Firstly, a black Hyundai i20 was broken into in Greystane Terrace, Invergowrie.
Nothing was taken, and three male youths in their late teens wearing dark hooded tops were seen to make off from there, heading into Dundee and the Technology Park.
Shortly afterwards, damage was inflicted on four cars parked in Luna Place, four parked in Gemini Crescent, and a further six in Wurzburg Place.
Furthermore, a black Peugeot 2008 parked in Mariner Drive was broken into and property stolen from it.
There may also be other cars or buildings affected which police have not been made aware of.
The news comes just days after an Invergowrie dad chased off a gang of youths when he caught them breaking into his car.
A police spokesman said: “As you may be aware, we posted an appeal for information about a similar series of vandalisms in this area earlier this week, and we are treating all of them as linked.
“We are currently following a number of lines of enquiry, and there will be extra patrols in the Invergowrie and Menzieshill and Technology Park areas.
“If you have any information that could assist our investigation, particularly if you saw this group of three young men in the area last night, please call 101 or speak with any police officer.”
Information can also be passed anonymously through Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
